The young musicians behind this year's post rock offering at Baybeats - ANECHOIS - luckily enough, represent none of this pretentiousness. Outside of their stage presence, they are endearingly quiet and down to earth. When asked to describe their music, they appear lost for words. "It's about everyday; from the time you wake up to when you go to sleep," answers Zeek, the frontman and lead guitarist, when asked about the instrumental they performed for this interview - The Moon and The Sun.
A rather broad description, but apt in my opinion.
While the likes of indie rock, powerpop et al rely on strong themes or messages to punctuate their songs, post rock is quite a separate beast that paints an aural image inspired by the intangible and often inexplicable side of the human experience, the stuff that is hard to put in words. It is perhaps this liberating fluidity that the band finds inspiration in to rock out as they do on stage, each member with a clear and defined signature to their parts that come together in a youthful and dynamic performance. I am looking forward to enjoying the landscape of sounds this band has to offer at Baybeats.
